Discarded Balloons are 32% More Likely to Kill a Seabird than Hard Plastics
Seabirds like albatrosses belong to the most threatened bird group in the world. Coincidentally, this group of birds (Procellariiformes) also ingests the highest amount of human garbage found in oceans around the world.

At this very moment, 250,000 tonnes of garbage is drifting through the world’s oceans and threatening marine wildlife who mistake it for food. The discarded balloons in the mix are 32 times more likely to kill a seabird than hard plastics. With nearly half of all seabirds experiencing population declines and more than one-quarter threatened around the world, it’s predicted that in the next three decades, 99 percent of all seabird species will have ingested trash drifting in the ocean.

Hybrid Form of Milfoil on Pentwater Lake - Pentwater Lake Improvement Board President Joe Primozich recently issued an update on changes going on in overall health of Pentwater Lake. Primozich said according to Progressive AE, the Grand Rapids company that monitors the lake vegetation, the aquatic invasive water milfoil has now changed to the hybrid form. “This means that it has a greater tolerance to herbicides and will require a more costly treatment than dealing with the native northern milfoil or the exotic Eurasian milfoil of the past 16 years,” Primozich said. “This appears to be a more aggressive growth pattern.”
